2017 BMW 4 Series pricing and specs

The upgraded 2017 BMW 4 Series range will arrive in Australia this June, with headline changes being the addition of new LED lighting, iDrive 6 and revised suspension tuning — and price hikes of up to $2000. The latest 4 Series LCI (short for Life Cycle Impulse, the company’s term for update) also spells the end of the 420d diesel option. Thus the 4 Series coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe hatchback range will come in 420i, 430i and 440i petrol forms only.

The U-2 Dragon is a jet-powered Lockheed spy plane that cruises at 70,000 feet above the earth, around double the cruising altitude of a QANTAS domestic plane.
